HUDSON, Ohio-- The man killed by a Hudson police officer was shot five times, the Summit County Medical Examiner's Office said.

Saif Al Ameri, 26, crashed his car on the Ohio Turnpike and ran from the scene on Dec. 4. Police said an officer found him in a wooded area and shot him after a struggle.

The shooting happened outside the view of police dash camera. But on the video, the officer can be heard ordering the man to "get down" and "stop."

According to the medical examiner's office, Al Ameri suffered one gunshot wound to the head, another to the face and three more to the left leg. The toxicology report is not complete.

The Ohio Attorney General's Office said Al AmeriĀ did not have a weapon.

Al Ameri, a citizen of the United Arab Emirates, was a student at Case Western Reserve University studying law.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is handling the case. It will turn its findings over to the attorney general's special prosecution unit.

Police from the UAE traveled to Hudson to speak with investigators and called Ohio Gov. John Kasich to ask for a thorough and fair investigation.
